A shortcut wrapper function to get the observed test statistic for a t test.
This function has been deprecated in favor of the more general `observe()`

.

## Usage

```
t_stat(
x,
formula,
response = NULL,
explanatory = NULL,
order = NULL,
alternative = "two-sided",
mu = 0,
conf_int = FALSE,
conf_level = 0.95,
...
)
```

## Arguments

- x
A data frame that can be coerced into a tibble.

- formula
A formula with the response variable on the left and the explanatory on the right.

- response
The variable name in

`x`

that will serve as the response. This is alternative to using the`formula`

argument.- explanatory
The variable name in

`x`

that will serve as the explanatory variable.- order
A string vector of specifying the order in which the levels of the explanatory variable should be ordered for subtraction, where

`order = c("first", "second")`

means`("first" - "second")`

.- alternative
Character string giving the direction of the alternative hypothesis. Options are

`"two-sided"`

(default),`"greater"`

, or`"less"`

.- mu
A numeric value giving the hypothesized null mean value for a one sample test and the hypothesized difference for a two sample test.

- conf_int
A logical value for whether to include the confidence interval or not.

`TRUE`

by default.- conf_level
A numeric value between 0 and 1. Default value is 0.95.

- ...
Pass in arguments to \infer\ functions.
